Monitoring the safety of transfusion practices in the U.S.
Symposium sur la sécurité transfusionnelle. Paris FRA, 1994/03/11.
The public demands and deserves the safest blood products to be available when and where needed.
Although absolute safety in the blood sypply is a desirable goal, many intervening factors may have a bearing on its final quality.
In the process of obtaining blood, the procedure for donor selection/exclusion acquires pivotal relevance.
Then, once the blood product is taken to the processing laboratory, there is a need that tighly and narrowly defined parameters for component preparation, infectious disease testing, handling and storage be in place and strictly adhered to.
Notwithstanding these measures to increase the safety and quality of blood, the most critical factor remaining in the whole operation is the one related to physician behavior and discipline as far as appropriate criteria for the use of blood products are concerned.
